Explore with Friends – Layout by Valeska

Hello, 49 and Market Friends,

Today I’m bringing you a layout with the beautiful Vintage Artistry Nature Study collection. The colors in this collection are perfect for any occasion. The green, blue, and yellow of the photos have been brought to life with the papers and all the decoration. A walk in the countryside in the season of yellow flowers is made even more beautiful with Nature Study.

I used the Exploration and Observations paper as the basis for my page. I tore the Observations paper in two, in a very simple way, leaving the white part of the paper very apparent. I positioned one part on top of the other and glued them together on top of the Exploration paper with the checkerboard facing upwards.

I used two 3×4 inch photos and the yellow frames from the Ephemeras Bits pack, with a card in the background. I used leftovers of cardboard under the photos already glued to the frame to give it height.

I used rub-on transfer stickers 6×8 around the photos, highlighting what was important to me. I used two tags also from the Ephemeras packet under the frames, with a piece of rustic string running through them and glued to the checkered paper.

I also used green sheets from the acetate pack and loved the transparency it gave to the photos and tags. I placed mushrooms, leaves, tickets, and various other elements from the ephemera pack. To finish, some butterflies with raised wings, just glue in the middle, and the Explore title.

Here is the video showing the whole creative process and the use of materials. I hope you will enjoy it!
